We believe ours is a happy, caring school in which each and every member of the school community is valued and respected by every other member. Our belief in treating one another with kindness and consideration is underpinned by our Christian values and permeates throughout every aspect of school life.
We believe children learn best in a calm, purposeful atmosphere and we believe in creating a stimulating, organised learning environment in which every child is encouraged to realise his or her potential. We believe in setting high standards in every aspect of school life, for example, presentation of work, dress, manners, speech, attitudes to others and work. The endeavours of all children are valued, and achievements are celebrated and shared.
Our School’s Vision
Walking together, discovering life
Taking the Bible’s description of the Road to Emmaus (Luke 24: 13-35) as our inspiration, in our school we aim to:
- Be a school community which supports one another on the journey of discovery and learning, where each child feels safe, valued and known.
- Provide an inspiring Christian environment in which our values shape each member and are evident in the life of the school, as well as in their actions and advocacy in the world.
- Invite children and staff to gain from the wisdom of Christian teaching and worship whilst being respectful of those of other faiths and none.
- Foster the development of an enquiring attitude towards learning and, through stimulating opportunities, encourage children, whatever their ability, to be the best that they can be.
- Encourage a love and care of creation, our neighbours near and far, and value our strong links with All Saints Church.
Our School Creed
This is our school.
Happiness and friendship will stay here forever.
Let the rooms be full of comfort, happiness and satisfaction.
Let them be full of caring and light-hearted people and have a relaxed atmosphere.
Everyone will stay friends and be happy in this building.
Be kind and friendly to one another.
Love everyone, whoever they are.
Be happy with yourself and love your life.
And let us love God who watches over us and cares for us.
(‘Modernised’ from an original creed by Year 6 pupils in 2000 as part of an R.E lesson)
